The Parthenon Sculptures

Today Bob Brown gave the following Notice of Motion to the Australian Senate

That the Senate calls on the Australian Government to make representations to the British Government to undertake the permanent return of the so-called ‘Elgin Marbles’ to the Greek Government, recognising that the marbles were part of the Parthenon at the Acropolis in Athens and should be returned to their historical home.

Senator Bob Brown

Congratulations it’s time.  There are no remaining excuses, the British Museum Must return them to the new Acropolis Museum
